This chapter discusses the experience of ageing in urban cities. It demonstrates trends in demographic ageing and urbanisation. It examines the factors that have been discovered to foster as well as hinder ageing well in urban centres. It raises concern over the growth in particular types of urban neighbourhoods — especially the deprived inner-city neighbourhood — and the lack of knowledge in relation to the experience and impact on ageing. It clarifies the person-environment relationship and identifies the gaps and shortfalls in knowledge. Lastly, it describes ageing in particular types of urban neighbourhoods.

Keywords:   ageing, urban cities, demographic ageing, urbanisation, inner-city neighbourhood, urban neighbourhoods, person-environment relationship
